Cards remain in top three for Brandon Heath

While his list of favorites has slightly changed due to the addition of a few more scholarship offers, two-way standout Brandon Heath of Palm Beach Lakes (FL) High School told that one school remained.

Brandon Heath of Palm Beach Lakes High School in Florida, a prospect that could suit up as either a defensive back or receiver on the college level, continues to see his stock rise.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound athlete drew strong reviews from publisher Larry Blustein earlier this year when he credited Heath's ability to excel on either side of the line as one of the reasons that he ranked him the 12th best prospect in the Sunshine State.

"One thing that stands out about Heath, whether you watch him live or on tape, is he makes big plays," wrote Bluestein. "There is not a prospect in the state, whether it's on offense or defense, that anyone will see who makes more big time plays." first spoke with Heath in April who stated that Louisville, along with Florida and Miami were his favorites, but he told told us on Sunday afternoon that he now has a slightly different trio of favorites.

"My top three right now are Florida, Louisville and West Virginia," said Heath, who now has more than a dozen offers.

Heath continued to describe what he finds attractive about each school that makes up his current list of favorites.

"I have a couple of former teammates (Jarrett Brown & Jetavious Best)at West Virginia. They signed with them last year."

"Florida is close to home and they have a lot of tradition, plus I grew up a fan of Florida."

"Louisville had the best offense in the nation last year, plus they are going to the Big East."

Cardinals assistant coach Tony Levine has remained in frequent contact with Heath, including a conversation just last week.

"I talked to Coach Levine just four or five days ago," he explained. "He was talking about him coming down to watch me play this year."

As a junior Heath recorded impressive numbers at both the receiver and safety positions, pulling in 32 catches for 580 yards and five touchdowns, while also recording 32 tackles and three interceptions on defense.

"I'm going to try to help our team win the state championship this year," said Heath, who was a 1st Team All-State choice last fall. "I think we have a real good shot at doing it."

And according to Heath, his college decision may just have to wait until after his senior campaign.

"I'll probably decide close to signing day," he explained. "I'll probably take all of my visits."

He currently plans on camping at Rutgers, West Virginia, Florida, Miami and possibly Florida State next month.
